Mean Green Macha Slushie

glowinggreensmoothiemainjpg-300x286

I used to think Macha was an acquired taste. I was not a big fan until a few years ago. Mr 7 however has liked it since his first try, so obviously he was quicker in acquiring a taste for it.

I have been getting into these lately. Frankly, it has been hot, I have been training hard and these are really refreshing!!

INGREDIENTS – serves 2 (or 1 if you want a big drink!)

2 cups tightly packed baby spinach

½ cucumber (optional)

¼ teaspoon green leaf stevia powder (optional) *

(you can use 1/2 frozen banana if not using stevia this will sweeten but gives a bit of banana flavour)

1 teaspoon macha powder (green tea)

About ½ cup water or non dairy milk

1 teaspoon vanilla essence (optional)

1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional)

½ teaspoon coconut essence (optional)

12-24 ice cubes (or more 0r less to desired consistency) – I use about 24 as I like it really icy like a slushy.

Put all ingredients except ice in blender or similar. Pulse and scrape down sides as needed. Add ice once spinach etc are liquefied and pulse until a slushy consistency is achieved, (you can do this gradually if you have a removable central lid on the blender and can do it with the motor running without getting green on everything). Enjoy!
